his historical study of the 19th-century Tasmanian Wars, reveals a new perspective of this little-known episode in Australian history. The author reassesses the black-white conflict of colonial Tasmania known as the 'Black War': a conflict based on land rights and cultural superiority between the white settlers and the Aborigines of the Wybalenna settlement. The author is a Senior Research Fellow at James Cook University whose previous publications include 'Aborigines and Settlers', 'Dispossession' and 'With the White People'. Includes a select guide to reading and research, an index and numerous black-and-white reproductions of 19th-century lithographs and sketches of Aborigines and government officials.
